Re: Rear springs MGB roadster

A lot of remanufactured parts leave a lot to be desired. I replaced the axle straps on mine recently and the replacement parts don't look any where near as robust as the originals.

Ballasted Ignition Coil

The PO had fitted a standard 12v coil which has worked fine but the car would originally have had a ballasted coil.

Adjusting Tappets with Clik-Adjust

Used my trusty old tappet adjuster yesterday for the first time in years. Never realised you can still get them and how expensive they are! It seems to have done the job and quietened a couple of noisy tappets - more on my blog at https://mgbtips.wordpress.com/2019/12/14/clik-adjust-rocker-gap-setti...

Re: MGB Roadster 1972

Re: Tow rope anchoring points?

My car is a 1975 mgb roaster. It is a RB converted to CB. There doesn't seem to be any obvious place to add a hook or some other attachment in case i were to need a tow!

Tow rope anchoring points?

Hoping I never need to be towed or in case I am asked to give a tow where are the best places to fix a tow rope. Has anyone made a bracket that is for that purpose and where is it fixed?
